Rosamund Pike was asked to strip to become a Bond girl, said "Sod that"

Today, in “Things Idris Elba probably won’t be asked to do”: Rosamund Pike opened up this week about the process of getting cast in a James Bond film, and the lines she refused to cross while doing so. Pike’s turn as a “Bond girl” came in 2002's Die Another Day (Pierce Brosnan’s final outing as the British superspy),…

Oscar Isaac drops in on the trailer for the brand new Star Wars animated series, Resistance

Star Wars has typically had pretty good luck with its animated output: with a few notable exceptions, the franchise is littered with cartoon success stories like Cartoon Network’s original Clone Wars and the recent, well-regarded Rebels. Now, we’ve got our first look at the franchise’s latest animated adventure, …

Netflix is breaking it off with Michelle Wolf's The Break (and also The Joel McHale Show)

Steven Universe fans, we've got a special Heart Of The Crystal Gems bundle for you

Steven Universe wrapped up its fifth and potentially final season last month—although Steven Universe: The Movie has been announced, a sixth season of the show has not—with the double-length episode “The Reunion.” And this week, Cartoon Network released a DVD edition of the linear event that closed out season five,…

An open letter to Wright Way Rescue, home of the world's best, most extra cat 

Late on Wednesday night, the Wright Way Rescue in suburban Morton Grove, Illinois—a no-kill animal shelter and worthy cause to which you can donate here—posted an ad trying to help one of their cats, a seven-year-old named Bruno, get adopted. Bruno, as the ad states, is a little bit extra, preferring to drink water…

If Donald Trump doesn't know shit about Apocalypse Now, what other pop culture doesn't he get?

Look, there’s plenty of stupid garbage nonsense Donald Trump spews everyday that has nothing to do with pop culture, which is why we don’t comment on it. But when the man who increasingly resembles a puffier and more cartoonish version of Anger from Pixar’s Inside Out weighs in on a classic, that’s our turf.

Behold, an oral history of "Scotty Doesn't Know" and Matt Damon's weird-ass Eurotrip cameo

Eurotrip, the 2004 teen sex comedy from Jeff Schaffer, is just a miserable film. It’s undercooked, unimaginative, and roughly 75% gay panic jokes. It’s redeemed, however, by two things: A very catchy song, and a genuinely surprising, all-in cameo from a Hollywood A-lister. At a high school graduation party in the…

PSA: A purple-hued ton of Prince albums are now available for streaming

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Prince fucking hated the idea of letting his music be streamed online. The reason was simple: money. “I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else,” he said. “They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.”

Here's all of the worthless shit Game Of Thrones stars have said about the finale

You know the deal at this point: There are exactly six episodes of Game Of Thrones left. It’s been a long time since the last one aired (August 2017!) and it’ll be a long time until the next one does (sometime next year). You already know people are going to die. Lots of them! This is, at least partially, the “Game Of…

Now look here, Nic Cage channeled the soul of Bogart for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, see?

Listen good, pal, because we’ve gotta get this news right the first time around, y’hear? You know what Nic Cage’ll do to us otherwise? Beat our teeth out, then kick us in the stomach for mumbling. And I can afford a blemish on my character, but not on my clothes, so let’s get down to it.

Woe unto the suits who rejected this pitch for a Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman movie

Halle Berry’s 2004 Catwoman film was disappointing for a lot of reasons, but mainly it was disappointing to see a character with such narrative potential get completely sunk by such a weird and bad movie. In addition to wondering what the hell was going on with that basketball scene, audiences were left wondering what…

The Smashing Pumpkins and Smash Mouth are beefing over (deep, melancholy sigh) Shrek

When Billy Corgan isn’t cavorting with supernatural entities and fighting the influence of youthful, globalist, social justice warriors, The Smashing Pumpkins’ frontman finds time for his other great hobby: starting beefs with just about anyone he can think of. Unfortunately, he may have just engaged an opponent…
